MACAU --- It's do-or-die time in the Summer Super 8 tournament.
NLEX will fight to advance to the semis but the Road Warriors have their work cut out for them.
Armed with a 1-1 record in Group A, NLEX makes its case for the next round against China's Xinjiang Flying Tigers.
Xinjiang also has a 1-1 record and the winner will join the currently-undefeated Etland Elephants to the semifinals.
The Road Warriors made quick work of Formosa to start Super 8 but fell victim to the Elephants' hot shooting Wednesday.
Tip off for the NLEX-Xinjiang tiff will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the East Asian Games Dome here.
